Back Door Slam had a big year in 2008. I was able to catch them early last year as they traveled through Nashville supporting James McMurtry. Later in the year, they were given the opening slot for the Kid Rock/Lynyrd Skynyrd tour. And, to round out the year, they toured with Gov’t Mule. I’m glad to see them getting some recognition; they really put on a great show. It’s amazing that each member of the band is only 21. I predict big things for them in the coming years. If you get a chance to see them, I highly recommend it!
